ST AUSTELL -PROPER BLACK

ST AUSTELL BREWERY

PROPER BLACK

Review by Rob

ST AUSTELL SAY…

A powerfully authentic IPA, Proper Job is brewed with a blend of imported American hops. It is a real treat of a beer with a growing reputation and loved by beer enthusiasts far and wide.

Perhaps the forerunner of all modern IPAs in the UK, Proper Job regularly wins awards, both from within the brewing industry and also at CAMRA Beer Festivals. The awards include the prestigious Champion Bottle Beer at CBoB and Champion Premium Best Bitter at the SIBA National Beer Festival.

An award winning modern IPA, packed full of citrus pineapple, grapefruit resinous flavours with a fine crisp bitter finish.

THE TASTE

THE VERDICT

I feel like St. Austell purposely ramped up the alcohol to 6% just to get the even keel of a black IPA. By no imagination is this a session beer, but you’ll get brownie points bringing this offering to your beer club, it has a distinctive character that many beers lack, a left field offering that will get you duels noted for something unusual and decent, go out and find. Recommended.
